Trying for only happy memories today
So hard to be left behind.
Days run into weeks into months
You were supposed to be here
Words left unsaid deeds left undone
Oh Mom, six months, still hurts
I still can't find the words
Memories will have to do today
Cannot believe this happened to you
Old man status not to be
I need you so many ways
I hate saying she's dead
Why is still the unanswered question.
There is thunder all around me
"Courage" written by Karen Lang
My broken heart is now leaking
Flowers are the only gifts now
I really hate the word coping
Some days it's just too much
Missing her with every simple thing
Your eyes shine on in mine
Learned some special places need avoiding
Life is now before & after
When I'm not crying, I'm numb.
Going backward and forward is hard
Inimically charged, I fake the smiles.
Saying good morning to a picture!
You are loved by so many
I feel like a rudderless ship.
Another day with a missing piece
